A propos de cet article

Oblong folio (440 x 570 mm), pp. [ii], 86, with 24 chromolithographed and two plain plates; numerous illustrations in the text (some in red and black); original brown cloth boards; title in gilt (dulled) on front cover; German Imperial crest on back cover; corners very slightly bumped.This account of the Franco-Prussian War was published to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the conflict. It celebrates the bravery and skill of the Prussian army.In this conflict 'the kingdom of Prussia and her German allies totally destroyed the military power of Imperial France. For nearly eighty years the defeated nation had given the law in military matters to Europe, whereas the victor, ten years earlier, had been the least of the continent's major military powers. Within a month Prussia established a military pre-eminence and a political hegemony which made the unification of Germany under her leadership a matter of course, and which only an alliance embracing nearly every major power in the world was to wrest from her half a century later'. In Prussia, at the time, the War of 1870 was seen (as is demonstrated by this work) as 'a heroic epoch; the deeds of those times were to be treasured, admired and, when necessity arose, repeated . . . . It has been left to a German historian of our own generation, writing nearly a century later, to see the full significance of the struggle: how during its course there emerged for the first time "that sinister problem of modern national War, from which we have foundered twice in succession". It is this which makes the Franco-Prussian War an event of importance far transcending the specialist field of the military historian, or even the historian of nineteenth-century Europe. Germany's magnificent and well-deserved victory was, in a profound and unforseeable sense, a disaster: for herself, and for the entire world' (Howard, The Franco-Prussian War pp. 1, 456).T2766.
